Switzerland: Environmental, Social & Governance Law

02.02.2021

We are pleased to share with you our briefing "Switzerland: Environmental, Social & Governance Law 2021".

Despite the pandemic, ESG is more than ever a core concern of investors, and the trend towards reallocation of capital is accelerating. Only last week, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink released his annual letter to CEOs in which BlackRock asks companies to disclose their plan for how their business model is compatible with a net-zero economy.

In our comprehensive briefing, we distil for decision-makers and in-house counsel essential legislative developments, disclosure requirements, governance challenges, private initiatives, capital markets opportunities, and on-going trends.

Our briefing was recently published by The International Comparative Legal Guides (ICLG), in a first edition publication reflecting contributions from leading law firms across more than 15 jurisdictions.

ESG raises a range of strategic issues for companies, including on corporate purpose, governance, risk assessment, supply chain, reporting, M&A, and financing.
